Turkey: Families Continue Sit-In Against PKK On Day 387

Families have been protesting in Diyarbakir for more than a year against abduction of their children by YPG/PKK terrorists.

A long-running sit-in in Turkey by families whose children have been kidnapped by YPG/PKK terrorists entered its 387th day on Wednesday.
The protest began on Sept. 3 last year in the southeastern Diyarbakir province, when Fevziye Cetinkaya, Remziye Akkoyun and Aysegul Bicer said their children had been forcibly recruited by YPG/PKK terrorists.
The sit-in outside the office of the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) -- which the government accuses of having links to the YPG/PKK terror group -- has been growing every day.
The grieving demonstrators have vowed to continue the sit-in until every family is reunited with their children.
Among protesting parents, Cennet Kavakli said she would continue to protest until she was reunited with her son Adil, who was kidnapped by the YPG/PKK in 2015 when he was 19.
"I will not leave here without my son. Give me my son back, I have no strength to endure," Kavakli said.
Abdullah Demir, a father of a boy who was kidnapped five years ago when he was 11, also vowed that he would continue his protest until he was reunited with his son, Fatih.
Demir called on his son to surrender to security forces and said: "My son, if you hear me, escape from them and turn yourself into justice."
Offenders in Turkey linked to terrorist groups who surrender are eligible for possible sentence reductions under a repentance law.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. The YPG is PKK's Syrian offshoot. -
